Good Friday

For the past dozen years, I’ve gone to an outdoor worship area at a local church on Good Friday to spend time with my Lord. It’s a beautiful spot, high above the plains, nestled in the pine trees, with an awesome view of the spine of the Rocky Mountains.

This year four of my girlfriends joined me. A sweet time with my Lord was even more special because I was able to share it with four wonderful women for whom I care deeply.

See the cross? At the base are nails and hammers. After you pray, you pound a nail into the cross and leave your sins, short comings, sorrows, idols, worries and fears at that site and leave that place feeling joyful and refreshed.

Yes, Good Friday is a sorrowful remembrance, but the joy of Easter is around the corner. It’s because of that blessed, empty tomb that my life is so full and rich. Thank you, Jesus.

Thank you, Megan for inviting me to go to the cross with you. Such an amazing time of prayer, praise and introspection. How wonderful to share the time with much loved sisters-in-Christ. Today may be Friday, but Resurrection Day is coming! Praise our Savior Jesus!!! Hallelujah!
